Registered AQHA Buckskin Mare
Jessica riding Chaco in the Ranch Trail Class.
Chaco is a gorgeous 2010 buckskin mare who always turns heads wherever she goes. We constantly get compliments on her. She is a great example of Terry Palmer’s 56-year AQHA breeding program and she’s one of his favorite mares. Chaco’s bloodlines go back to Two Eyed Jack and Gay Bar King and her sire was our great buckskin stallion Zuni Jack. She has beautiful confirmation, lots of color, and a pretty head with large expressive eyes. Chaco excelled from a young age, and as a 3-year-old she placed second overall at the 2013 Four Corners Cutting and Reining Quad Futurity after competing in Western Pleasure and Reining. First place went to her half-brother Zandy, another fine product of our Palmer Quarter Horse breeding and training program. After her money-winning finish at the futurity, AQHA Professional Horseman and trainer Troy Rogers further refined Chaco’s training for another 5 months. Terry’s granddaughter, a member of the West Texas A&M University equestrian team, competed with Chaco in the Texas show circuit in the disciplines of Reining, Working Cow Boxing, Ranch Pleasure, and Ranch Trail.
With her exceptional breeding, color, and confirmation, Chaco would also be a great addition to your program as a broodmare. We’ve given her a couple of years off from the show pen and her first 2019 foal was a gorgeous buckskin colt sired by our brown AQHA stallion Animosa Jack. She was bred again this spring to our outstanding AQHA buckskin stallion Charming Eyed Buck.
We have ridden Chaco on the many trails of our ranch, and as her pedigree promises she’s cowy, proven when we entered her at few local cattle team sorting jackpots, even winning one of them! She has all the reining maneuvers, and excels in Ranch Pleasure and Ranch-style Western Pleasure show classes. Chaco is quick, responsive, athletic, and lively to ride and has proven herself as a brood mare too. For inquiries, email or call the ranch.
